Oct. 2nd: NAMMBA Best Practices In Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Talent

Course Overview: NAMMBA Best Practices In Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Talent

Leveraging Diversity As A Competitive Advantage To Grow Talent

Wednesday, October 2
2:00 - 3:00 PM CST

ABOUT THE COURSE
Generating diversity awareness and finding diverse talent is one of the top challenges for organizations today. How can your organization better connect with, market to, and recruit minority sales and support staff? The answer is complex– but begins with developing a targeted and well-planned internal and external recruitment strategy at your organization.
 
NAMMBA’s Best Practices Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Talent webinar emphasizes the importance of developing internal and external strategies as a critical piece of your overall diversity recruiting efforts.  As market opportunity grows and shifts, lenders who aren’t effectively reaching diverse borrowers will fall behind their competition and continue to lose revenue and market share. The Best Practices in Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Talent webinar will share strategies on how organizations can increase their diverse employee population while leveraging the resources and capabilities of a strategic partnership with NAMMBA.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
